About Lucy or Brian

My wife and I have been vacation home owners for 29 years our last venture was a Condo in the Dells which we sold in 2007

Lucy or Brian purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Lucy or Brian chose Southwest Michigan

With time and age our trek to the Dells became harder and harder because of the distance from our home. We were always interested in New Buffalo so after we sold our place in the Dells we came over here.

What makes this cottage unique

Proximity to Chicago. 60-70 miles

The Casino is out on Mauden Road ( Jefferson becomes Mauden at the bend) approximately 1 & 1/2 miles from the Cottage. The Outlet Mall is 10 miles away out on route 12 in Michigan City, when you see the cooling tower it will be on your left. The golf course is just Southwest of the cottage approximately 3 miles away. Very charming themed design. It will remind you of being a kid going up to the cottage with your folks oversized Silverware & China.

Would stay again!

  • 4 of 5

Was really Impressed with room size and over all layout of the house. The openness and the brightness from natural light was great! The screened in area off the kitchen was pefect for when it rained just a little during our stay. Only reason giving 4/5 stars is the access to backyard and the limited space for cars. (Which nothing can be done about that. It is what it is.) LOVE the beach pass! I've been vacationing here for years and your the first property that has had it! With the random weather change this made it a much more pleasant stay being able to re-enter the beach lot after the short storms and not having to pay again., made for happy mom and happy kids!

The pictures didn't do this property justice. The house was easy to navigate with lots of space.

  • 4 of 5

From the time of our arrival until our departure we enjoyed everything the home and grounds had to offer. The home is well maintained with tons of space and is very close to down town New Buffalo, about a 3 minute drive. This was a great space and experience for our family of four. The one down side was the decor was not exactly young child friendly(our boys 3.5 and 1 year). My wife and I couldn't let our boys alone without risking accidental damage to ornamentation, fortunately we spent most of our time at the beach!

We significantly enjoyed the house and felt right at home. Our 3.5 year old called it "Our new different house in the jungle!"

Additional information about rental rates

Housekeeping $105

100% refund if canceled over 30 days before arrival. Less than 30 zero refund but all monies deposited can be applied to any available future bookings. There are no penalties.
Standard arrival times are 3:00pm and departure at 10:00am in season (summer time) Departures are strictly enforced however off season & arrival times are more relaxed. When housekeeping is done it's yours.
One other note about booking inquiries they usually come in clusters of 2 & 3 at a time for approximately the same dates at the same time so I am carrying on a conversation with several people when some one in the group says "I want to book your cottage" the other people I am conversing with are informed that I have a unconfirmed booking in range of their requested dates and the conversation stops. The party who is requesting the booking has 3 days to get the deposit check to me otherwise the cottage is put back in circulation to receive inquires. PayPal is available only as a last minute pay option and you must add a 5% service fee to your booking amount when paying.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
